Golden Feeling Demo

The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black-leathered knights are crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night
Gonna stay for a while 'cause there's no chance to hide
Your money runs out for the film

Though this place is so crowded
You feel so alone 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperadoes in love won't kill this sweet dove
For a nugget of fleeting bliss
C'mon, c'mon, you can't escape
The fleeting bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

It's a new situation
The start of a game, you've already won the prize
He's a lunatic dancer
Who's not aware that he's skating on thin ice
There's no turning back
No time for regrets, you should've known better, though
Another chance to fall in love
Another chance to turn you on
Another chance - to turn you on

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

And if I try to write it by ear we'll a lot of stuff to discuss in lyrics misunderstandng topic! <img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle> (Last few days I often mishear even russian words)

About Golden Feeling.
There's exist three versions of GF.

* The Jet Set single version
* Dreamscapes version
* Movie version (from Der Bulle & Das Mdschen) [impossible to get].
The movie version has a stronger and clearer sound.
I can't understand why the movie version became the b-side of Jet Set.

Mrs.Picard 08 Dec 2001 08:40


I LOVE Golden Feeling. I also like the movie version very much.

In the beginning of the movie you can hear the GF demo...

Alien 08 Dec 2001 08:52

I'm interested in GF dreamscapes version lyrics... I love the song but that's the only version I've heard...

bleeding bullet of a kiss

wonderful

Alien 25 Mar 2008 22:49

So 6+ years later any ideas on what Marian sings after "your money runs out for the film" and before "it's a new situation"? [magnify]

Krapplund 26 Mar 2008 09:09

Golden Feeling

Though this place is so crowded
You feel so alone 'cause you're eye to eye with him

For nuggets of fleeting bliss
C'mon, c'mon, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss
Here comes that golden feeling

It's a new situation
The start of a game, you've already won the prize

Lyrics section
Some others lyrics from demos are available.

Alien 26 Mar 2008 13:58

uuuh... the same old story.... funny how some things never change.
What's the use in saying again what was already written on this same page?

I'm very well acquainted with the lyrics from Cosmic Meadows encyclopaedia as I've been acquainted with it 6 years ago and it's not FULL version of the lyrics. And what I wondered was if anybody tried to figure out what else Marian actually sings.

I think a while ago Trent tried to figure out all the lyrics the way Marian sings the songs and not the way they're officially stated on Moonbase. But it's eternity since his site is down.

Kaz 26 Mar 2008 16:45

I'll have a listen to it and see if I can work it out (no promises).

Kaz 26 Mar 2008 21:12

OK, this is what I hear (but I'm sure it's not right. It's too difficult to hear)...

Lay your body right down for the thrill
Youre free, youre alive, theres no time for regrets
Push the door, youre alive, breaking in., for the kill.

(... means I have no clue what that part is).

Anyone got any better ideas?

Alien 26 Mar 2008 21:33

Kaz, I really really love you.


(and I'm not good in hearing lyrics, I know, that's why I asked) [smile2]

Kaz 26 Mar 2008 21:38

And I'm not much better!

(and I love you too!)

Altair 02 May 2008 15:19

Golden Feeling is very special for me too!
[smile]
Especially a refrain and a part from it:
"Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes"
[jump2][jump2][jump2][jump2][jump2]

russharvey 09 May 2008 21:51

oh oh!! now there is Golden Feeling live.......... perhaps those lyrics are different too! Poor Alien... did you ever get your question answered?

Altair 29 May 2008 17:33

But nevertheless in demo version from DS3 else the second couplet too is no such which is written in Cosmic Meadows. In demo version from DS3 Marian is singing another lyrics.
I hear in it only: "....is much too sweet, ....is much too sweet" and right at the end of it: "... never lastly kiss, ....never lastly kiss" (?) and I don't hear anything more.

FallenAngel 29 May 2008 19:58

Funny when I came back home this evening I was listening to this song in my car.

It woke up memories... Listening in bed with my old walkman to GF.... [smile]

jetset 31 May 2008 13:11

What I heard from the second verse. Still working on it, not satisfied with other missing lines yet.

Since you're up with her it feels like a sip
B'cause the taste is much to sweet, is much to sweet
And the massive chaos of the city grooves
It's where abandon [...] to fear, it's only a flick
And you [...] a world, you worry the call at it some but you leave its the rest (?)

No doubt you're just for the diamond road in a neverlasting kiss, neverlasting.

Altair 31 May 2008 13:51

jetset, thank you very very much!!! [spin]

Golden Feeling Demo 1 lyrics
 
I posted Golden Feeling Demo 1 video on youtube and, as I always do, included lyrics in the commentary. Some lyrics are the same as in the original version but there is a lot of new ones that can't be found anywhere I know. I understood some of the lyrics myself but still there're empty places here and there. Any help with unknown lyrics or the misheard ones would be appreciated. Here are the lyrics:

The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black leathered knights crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night, for the night
Gonna stay for a while, 'cause there's no chance to hide
Your money runs out for the film, for the film
Here's the freedom of life, there's no time for regrets
Through the light, pushing through, through the light
(?)

Though the place's so crowded
You feel so alone, 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperados in love won't kill this sweet dove
For nugget of fleeting bliss
Come on, come on, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

Since you're up the hill, it feels like a sin
'cause it tastes much too sweet, it's much too sweet
(?)
And you claim what you want, you will need to go
When it's time that you leave this press
But now you 'll just die in a road
In an everlasting kiss, everlasting

Krapplund 17 Jan 2011 17:36

PredatorKiller100 17 Jan 2011 18:01

I've got all of these lyrics, and "It's a new situation" part wasn't in the demo. I'm missing some other parts that were in the demo version only.

jetset 17 Jan 2011 18:53

I once tried to decipher those unwritten lyrics, but as I'm not a native I usually make up funny expressions ;)
Here is my attempt on this :
http://www.alphaville.org/showthread...grooves&page=2

Your help is welcome....

PredatorKiller100 17 Jan 2011 19:58

You got some words better than me, I tried to choose the best possible words, and now it would look like this:

The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black leathered knights crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night, for the night
Gonna stay for a while, 'cause there's no chance to hide
Lay your body right down for the thrill, for the thrill
You are free, you're alive, there's no time for regrets
You're alive, push the door, you're alive
And heading for the killer, for the kill

Though the place's so crowded
You feel so alone, 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperados in love won't kill this sweet dove
For nugget of fleeting bliss
Come on, come on, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

Since you're up with her, it feels like a sin
'cause the taste is much too sweet, it's much too sweet
And the massive chaos of the city moves
It's where (?), it's only a flick
And you claim what you want, you will need to go
When it's time that you leave this to rest
No doubt you're just for diamond road
In an everlasting kiss, everlasting

jetset 18 Jan 2011 11:00

Great work !
not sure about some words though, like sin or moves, because when using headphones I heard different consonants. As always in such cases, we would need several inputs to make sure we are on the right track.

happysheep 26 Mar 2015 20:47

Here's my best stab at the lyrics. I've put my changes in CAPS. Pretty confident in most of them... but don't ask me what a "fathom boy" is!


The streets are open wide for a brand new adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the black leathered PUNKS crawling out of the basement
And hand in the tickets for the night, for the night
Gonna stay for a while, 'cause there's no chance to hide
Lay your MONEY right down for the thrill, for the thrill
You are free, you're alive and there's no time for regrets
You're alive, push the door, you're alive
And YOU HIT THE THRILL RIDE (or RIGHT?) for the kill

Though the place is so crowded
You feel so alone, 'cause you're eye to eye with him
And you know he will take you
He's got nothing to lose and there's no way for you to win
Desperados in love won't kill this sweet dove
For a nugget of fleeting bliss
Come on, come on, you can't escape
The bleeding bullet of a kiss

Here comes that golden feeling
It's shining in your eyes
We're always going on and on
Right from that day they start to shine

Since you're up with her, it feels like a sin
'cause the taste is much too sweet, it's much too sweet
And the MASSIVE DECAY of the city moves
It's where A FATHOM BOY'S ONLY A FLING, it's only a FLING
AND YOU CLAIM ALL ALONG YOU WON'T EVEN CALL
AND ITS TIME THAT YOU LEAVE THIS CARESS
BUT NOW YOU'RE JUST (a) POOR GUY IN THE ROAD
In an everlasting kiss, everlasting kiss

jetset 26 Mar 2015 21:04

Firstly I'd like to thank you for the time you spent on this, Happysheep.
It seems to confirm one direction, I may be wrong but I had always thought this was about two lovers meeting in the midst of a crowd and the rest of the people was blurred. But it could have, or it's just my imagination, a link with The Breathtaking Blue and the James Dean's crash, a car race on which onlookers bet, and all the protagonists of the scene are in for a rush of adrenaline.

happysheep 26 Mar 2015 21:30

My interpretation of the song is pretty simple. A black-leathered "punk" pays to go into a club, seeking excitement. The point of view then switches to the girl, as she and the boy meet and then kiss. In the final verse the point of view switches back to the boy, as he realizes that what was just supposed to be a "fling" is something way more intense, and that he doesn't want to let her go.

?

jetset 28 Mar 2015 11:32

...Or it simply has to do with the Der Bulle und Das Mdchen story !

Tough transcription indeed, I'm having a hard time on the same parts years after :)
I disagree for PUNKS, but I'm ok for YOU WON'T EVEN CALL.
I hear "And heading for the TWILIGHT" in the first verse.
The more I try to get the lines the more I come up with nonsense phrases :

Since you're LOCK with her, it feels like a sin
'cause the taste is much too sweet, it's much too sweet
AND THE MASS IN THE CHAOS OF THE CITY GROOVES

humanracer 28 Mar 2015 18:25

Even Marian doesn't know what the song is about! It's a great song regardless, either in demo or completed form. One of the best opening songs too.

jetset 28 Mar 2015 20:02

- That's not the right answer.
The right answer is Hungary
- Is what ?
- Hungary !
- Hungry ?
- Like I'm Hungary
- That's a country ?


This is an SOS for 7ven...

shapeseven 11 Aug 2015 14:52

'mmmhkay out there, I had a call with Marian this noon and he confessed the lyrics are simply not documented anywhere, so he wrote them down using his genius memory plus the DS-Version of GF. Here's his reply:

...really hard to grasp the words I have to admit:

The streets are opened wide for a brandnew adventure
The asphalt flashes in the light
And the blackleathered knights are crawling out of their basements
And handing the tickets for the night
Won't you stay for a while 'coz there's no chance to hide
Lay your money right down for the bill
? alive, there's no time for regrets (you're alive)
?, now come in for the kill (you're alive), for the kill...
So this place is so crowded... etc

Can't decode the exact words I'm singing where I placed the questionmark. But I still remember their semantic content. It deals with the idea that "one is destined to exist ="thrown into existence" as Albert Camus wrote. In context of the song it means that although it is not one's decision to be born, at least one can draw some excitement out of the fact of life, which kind of represents one's ticket to the adventures of the night= the game of life and death brought on by its seductive yet ominous messengers, the "blackleathered knights". Well, that's it roughly...
From Alphaville with love
Marian Gold

jetset 11 Aug 2015 18:47

Hey, first of all, many thanks Toby for asking directly to Marian.[thumbup]
I now understand why the Dreamscapes booklet only provided the official lyrics, not the draft ones. Of course a bit disappointed not to get a full review of the verses but, on the other hand, Marian's explanation sheds a light on this song and this defo deserves a post on the AVNow site.

nicole 11 Aug 2015 19:54

Thank you so much!! So my question is, when Marian was singing this demo for the first time, he didn't know what he was singing or did he forget what the lyrics were now when he was asked at question? While listening to the demo, he's obviously saying something, but what? [laugh] So my interpretation is that he doesn't remember the lyrics. And I definitely agree! I feel his should be posted on the AVNow website. I'm sure many others have the same question.

Hi Nicole, as a native what do you hear in the second verse, just curious [smile]
